The Hotel is located a few yards from the Medici Chapel in the famous Basilica of San Lorenzo, known for the New Sacristy where Michelangelo sculpted some of his greatest masterpieces, 50 metres from the cathedral and within easy walking distance from the city’s most important museums.
The Hotel Accademia is an ideal place not only for a holiday devoted to art and beauty, but also for a business trip, being close to the internationally important Fortezza da Basso conference centre.
From the highway (autostrada) follow the signs for the historic centre and Santa Maria Novella railway station. Near the Fortezza da Basso, take Viale Spartaco Lavagnini and at the first traffic light turn right into Via Santa Caterina d’Alessandria.

The hotel can be reached by car. It does not have its own garage but is affiliated with one nearby.
The central train station of Santa Maria Novella is just a 10-minute walk away from Hotel Accademia.
Otherwise you can take a private taxi and reach the hotel in 5 minutes.
From Florence airport you can take a private taxi or the shuttle bus that stops right in front of Santa Maria Novella Central Station.

Great, centrally located hotel
This hotel is a short (5 – 7 minute) walk from Firenze SMN station and is located right near the Florence Central Markets and a short walk from all major attractions and the shopping area. The surrounding area has an abundance of restaurants and bars. The produce markets at the Central Markets offers a wide range of food options and there is a trendier food hall upstairs. Breakfast was simple but adequate and the hotel is quiet and has very comfortable beds – I had the best nights sleep of anywhere in Italy so far!
